Twitter founder donates $ 10 million to help US prisoners

Twitter founder and CEO Jack Dorsey donates $ 10 million to the non-profit Reform Alliance. According to Mr. Dorsey, this money will be directed for the purchase of medical masks and other equipment necessary to combat the spread of COVID-19. All items will be sent to prisons and prisons in all 50 US states.

The Reform Alliance was created by American rappers Jay-Z and Meek Mill and is trying to get US laws changed to reduce the number of prisoners. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, NCOs have stated that it is necessary to release older people, patients, and prisoners who are not dangerous to society from places of deprivation of liberty, since prisons, according to the Reform Alliance, can become centers of the spread of coronavirus, and prisoners will not have the opportunity to avoid infection . The organization also asks to cancel the terms of imprisonment for those who received them for technical misconduct such as fines not paid on time.
